A photo (or three) a day for 2012.

A generous half-pint at Golders Green…and caught in a thunderstorm at the North Circular…

The Refectory at Golders Green…and the dark band at the top is the railway bridge carrying the line into the Tube station.

At the bar, I’d ordered a pint of Kronenbourg, only to find that the tap ran dry two-thirds of the way up the pint-glass, so I was charged for only a half-pint. The football, by the way, was today’s game Swansea City 3 West Ham 0, with a Sky match commentary in a language which I assumed to be Welsh, and a following studio discussion in English! Very strange…

After leaving the pub, I wandered northwards to Finchley. Nearing the North Circular Road, a thunderstorm developed, and, drenched, I mused that maybe an 82 or 460 bus would have been a better option 😉

  1. Only two-thirds of a pint, that’s unlucky! I got caught out in that storm too, impressive thunder. Taught me a lesson to always take the umbrella, I knew I’d have the learn the hard way!

  2. Haha, as a Melbourne girl new to London, you can be forgiven for being caught out by the unpredictability of London weather; as a long-time Londoner, I’ve got no such excuse ;).
